Introduction

Ingleborough hillfort

The Aggregate Extraction and Geoarchaeological Heritage of the Ribble Valley and Kirkham Moraine was an Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund project that studied the potential impact of aggregate extraction on the archaeological resource of two areas in Lancashire, England: the Ribble Valley (2005-2007) and the Kirkham Moraine (2007-2008).

The two studies forming this project were jointly undertaken by Oxford Archaeology North and the University of Liverpool Geography Department, funded by the ALSF and under the overall management of English Heritage. The University of Liverpool undertook the geological and geomorphological elements of the studies, OA North undertook the archaeological elements, and the palaeobotanical elements were undertaken jointly.The research formed a patnership project with English Heritage, the Environment Agency, Lancashire County Council, North Yorkshire County Council and the Aggregate Industry the key stakeholders.
